Billing Information

Your account begins to incur charges after you have registered for classes or signed up for housing or meal plans.

Your student account

  • Charges for the fall semester begin showing on your account in early July. 
  • Charges for the spring semester begin showing on your account in November. 
  • The university does not mail paper bills. Account balance reminders are sent to the student's university email. 
  • If you are a parent and want to view your student's account, the student must add you as an Authorized Payer.

Explanation of charges on your account

  • Estimated Financial Aid 
    • Your account will reflect “estimated financial aid.”
    • Estimated aid includes pending aid which the student has accepted.
    • Students must complete all requirements/documentation to ensure that those funds are applied to your account.
  • Authorized & Disbursed Aid
    • Authorized Aid is your accepted financial aid, including loans, that will be applied to your account. 
    • Disbursed Aid is the total amount of aid that has been applied (credited) to your account.
  • Health Insurance
    • All students are charged for health insurance each semester.
    • If you already have health insurance, you may waive your health insurance here
    • Please allow three weeks for your submitted health insurance waiver to be processed. 
  • Prior balances
    • Financial Aid can only be used to pay for charges during the designated term. So any prior semester balance that is owed must be paid before the billing due date. Even if the current semester’s aid will generate a refund, the student must pay prior term charges out of pocket before the billing due date.
